2:01 pm
left 23 dead. boko haram in retreat in international coalition celebrates droving the armed group out of key towns in fie jeer yeah. the german chancellor warns as new talks where the e.u. leaders. >> the 2022 world cup final. on december 18th. >> ♪ ♪. >> the yemen president accusing the former government of trying to stage a coupe against him. after his base was attacked from the air. forces loyal to the president plan to take control of the airport in aidan from fighter whose support the former president.
2:02 pm
with the compound where president hattie was staying the palace was then attacked by fighter jets. it is just about a month only since he fled house arrest, the capitol and went to aidan. this is a battle not between two rival groups but between two men. forces loyal to president hadi retake the airport loyal to the former president. the afters short but tough battle lasting four hours. with passengers planes within range of the bullets. the forces unit had refused to give up their arms and got fie themselves within the barracks. then they attack the airport. >> the it fooer got so intense, the airport was shut down and passengers taken back
2:03 pm
into the terminal. forces loyal to hadi then defeated the loyalist and surrounded them. it is presidented the houthiss are now in control of the north. they wont to make sure the clashes are happening in aidan, so tayla be taken the fight to hadi detectively. an unidentified war plane hit lady's base. he insists remens the legit mitt leader. if they were able to take control of the airport it would have weaken hadi, who has declared it the temporary capitol. he has spent time reporting from yemen. in fact pretty recently, you
2:04 pm
were there. is this coming down to a struggle between two mentula are in the military and split? is it a platter who supported the former president and who supports the current president hadi in the military? >> two a large extent, yes. at least on the ground in terms of when this battle is being decided from a fire power perspective. it really does depend on who has more guns on the ground. as it stands now former president al-asaad da who was yourselfed in the houthis movement have manged to take control, and large part oz if north, and president hadi who himself is from the south has a lot of pop la support there. and because he was forced a few weeks ago to set up these
2:05 pm
popular committees essentially to give him some sort of might on the ground. there's also the reege gnat perspective the presidency. just issues a statement accusing iran's loyalist as they put it of trying to execute another coupe in the south and attack his palace. so there is a great regional element to this. >> so these loyalists as they are labeled these supporters of the former president well, they have taken the fight to the south where they believe they could win, inform they don't succeed there does he believe he can move it back to the capitol that is controlled by the sunnies and therefore re-establish his reign over the whole country. >> well, he definitely would
2:06 pm
like to believe that, but on the ground from when we were reporting there, and seeing it, there is huge inequality, they don't have the same amount of weapons or men as those in the north. the houthies as well as loyalists have. in fact, there were reports that just in the past few hours, a shipment of arms docked in the port city which is controlled by the houthies another example of more reinforcements arriving for them. so as much as he would like to at least on the ground appear so, but in terms of popular support, the most of the largest protests that have taken to the streets since this coupe, and since the unsettling events several months ago have been in favor of houthies. so while he does enjoy it appears more popular support in terms of fire power, he is outgunned. >> there is no doubt that iran supports the motives of the houthies whether it's
2:07 pm
actually back -- is a mat they are's being debated. how much of an interest is saudi arabia taken in what president is doing. so this could end up being one very big regional arm wrestle between the two in the middle east? as well as the other waterways that lead to the redirect examination sea. they have always lad a keep interest in it, what appears to be the problem so far in terms of the gulf perspective in the saudi perspective in particular is there haven't been unifreewayed approach among the gulf corporation council with regards to yemen. for example former president had very good ties with the united arab emirates who were
2:08 pm
pushing a dillon kind of solution, to that of the saudi arabians however it appears that since the gcc responded to the coupe announcement just over a month ago that they have been trying to bring themselves more in line. nine people have now been arrested in connection with what took place. al jazeera's jackie roland is in the tunis capitol. and sent us this. >> the cruise ship splendid da pulls out of port. leaving behind tunis and the horror of the day before. the ship also leaved behind some of it's passengers. victims of the attack on the
2:09 pm
museum, a grim ending to a mediterranean holiday. some weren't carried their passports so they haven't been identified. more than 40 people were injured. some of them have been talking about their experience. >> we entered the rooms in the old part of the museum, suddenly my daughter and i started to hear shots and everyone started to run. people started to try and save themselves trying to hide behind the windows and in the corners of the room. >> two gunman were killed when discusser forces stormed the museum. but it is believe they had accompliced. police say they have arrested nine people so far, four of whom they believe were detectively involved. meanwhile, the prime minister has been giving details of security across the country. question will be pitting in place check points that will manned and supervisors by the national army. both the national army and
2:10 pm
security personnel will intensify their patrols across the nation. patrols between the army and security will also be conducted. >> the museum will remain closed for several more days. when it reopens it can expect fewer visitors. they are removing tunisia from their list offend destinations. >> tunisia has been held up as the success story and so far it's been spared much of the violence sweeping other part oz if region, now the parliament is looking to fast track new anti-terror laws and the part has prompted to fight those behind wednesday's attack. >> the first of the victim suicide lays to rett. the my who died guarding the museum. tunisia remains in shock and in morning. it is also air ware that it can no longer remain on the sidelines of what has become flown as the war on terror. >> jackie join us now live
2:11 pm
emergency measures pushes in very quickly in the war on terror going to be ruthless says the leader of the country, what in particular can you notice? what will be most obvious about this. >> well, certainly there have been a number of check points set up on major roads around the country more i.d. checks in particular, the prime minister indicated there would be a focus on controlling tunisia's borders. a perfect example of that,
2:12 pm
when the french interior minister will come to visit tunnies. and france has had a very recent taste of these kinds of attacks took place back in january. if this attack was designed to scare away the tourists and the money they bring with them for a country that seems to be doing better than most, if that is the case, how is tunisia going to counter that or keep them there? well whether that was the objective, or one of the objectives in the attackers when they planned the attack on the museum, it certainly is going to be one of the consequences. charlie, tourism was only really starting to pick up. after the arab spring began four years ago. there was this sentiments among visitors. tunisia was very closely associated with other neighboring countries that are a lot more unstable, like
2:13 pm
libya or egypt and for that reason people have been slow to return. we have heard that a number of cruises will not be stopping in tunisia and they will be leaving tunisia off the itineraries what they can deal to deal with that is addressing the problem there itself. the security measures yes they are important for national security, they are important to reassure tun thesians, but also they are important to send a message to foreign tourists and foreign investors that tunisia is safe. that it is serious about tackling the problem and that it is open for business. however, in the short term, i think that we are going to see tunisia a no go area apart for the more add venn rouse traveler. >> thank you.
2:14 pm
coming up we will be talking to the head of the u.n. missions the democratic republic of congo about efforts to clear out rebel fighters in the east. also two, al jazeera journalists on trial in egypt make their latest appearance in court. and in sport. broken bankrupt, top level italian going out of business after more than a century. on the one side, the u.s., on the other side the arhinian diplomates. meeting with a few others on the fourth day of talks now. and the u.s. leader of the delegation john kerry and his iranian opposite number, the two of them have hoped to broke ear deal by next week, it is though tough and intense as mr. kerry. >> and a european negotiator, not wishing to be named has
2:15 pm
told the news agencies the discussions may well have to be extended. let's bring in our diplomatic editor joining us now live where those talks are taking place. and if it comes to the end of march and no decisions have been made, no frame work, what happens then? >> well, i think they have no choice but to do another extension. but no one david, wants to do that. i think they believe that the window to actually get this deal is closing remember, the interim deal november 2013 and ever since then, they have been extended rolling over this interim deal, trying to get a final deal, but they know the forces are out there opposed to all of this, are gathering strength. they know that congress is there, and november that letter from the 47 senator ises, they have the address to
2:16 pm
congress, by the israeli prime minister. he is now back in power, they have the opposition from the gulf states. they know their time is running out, and they need to get this deal soon that's why you have someone as important as the u.s. secretary of state, and his iranian counter part putting aside all their other business and sitting in the hotel beside me. there are a total of seven there, they are having breakfast meetings and meeting often until midnight. >> the thing is, james all those people against any kind of deal in congress, have said that far from lifting sanctions which is obviously why iran is there because he wants the sanctions to be lifted. if no deal is reached than sanctions could actually be increased? absolutely. and i think that is one of the worries that may welcome from congress. i think if you listen to some of the delegates they will say yes, you have that coalition
2:17 pm
on one side, but the coallation on the other side trying to get a deal, the p. five plus one let me remind you, that's the five permanent members of the security council, this is something that u.s. and russia agreed on. is a bigger coalition than those opposed but i think they are aware of the forces against them, what is emerging is that they may be some disagreements within the camps here and the negotiating. certainly we are detect the french have some problems with what the u.s. is proposing particularly the time line for any deal. the u.s. wants iran to be subject to scrutiny, and inspections for a. year period the present aren't happy with that, they say that's not good enough, must be 15 or 25 years. thank you very much, james because there live.
2:18 pm

talks about that country as future, the explosion delay as el delegation from taking off where u.n. mediated negotiations are supposed to be taking place different groups have claimed responsibility for explosions near the only working airport in the course of the last week. monitoring those delays talked he sends us this. >> talks were delayed because the delegation based in tripoli couldn't fly earlier in the day they say the air base was targeted by forces loyal to the general now the united nations is still hoping that both the one from the gnc in tripoli are going to meet later in the day here there are two issues on the agenda, forming a national unity government with a prime minister who has a full say
2:20 pm
and implements a cease fire, disbanding the militias, forming a national unity government with two mandates, securitying libya and starting a fight against groups affiliated with isil. the general concern here by the international community which is monitoring those talks is that the concern of the two parties fail to achieve a settlement, there will be no division there will be more fighting in libya and groups affiliated with isil are going to further seize the opportunity to expand in the eastern part of the country.
2:21 pm
2:22 pm

2:27 pm
of events whether greece can pay back it's debt. joining live from brussells. $207 million but these amounts go up sometimes day by day is greece the more trouble than it appeared to be a couple of weeks ago. >> well, i think the situation is getting more serious and debt mounting if you would like, isn't getting any smaller. now, you will remember, back in february, in this very building an extension was allowed to allow them to this bail out program for another few months. in return for which david they had to come one a detailed reform plan. don't forget they are now run by a new wing, to cast off the shackles of austerity and it is a question of how you resolve those competing objectives. which is really now causing a
2:28 pm
big crisis because the european union doesn't feel they are playing straight, they have seen these reform ideas they say they are not good enough, there are technical talks that are meant to be happening on how to push forward. they have come to a screeching halt, and all the while there is a run on greek banks $350 million was withdrawn yesterday, that's the largest single day for some time. that's causing real concern. and then next week the greek have to pay pensions and it is the short term their access to cash to get the country moving to keep it moving. which is now a real crisis. although the greek process on today's agenda, has pleaded for a meeting on the margins of this summit, the french, the germans the coalition to
2:29 pm
try and un -- unlock this unfreeze this stand off and that meet willing take place later tonight after dinner during which things like ukraine will be discussed. it isn't entirely popular there are some people here saying we are part of the union, we are part of a creditor group, why do the french and germans get to discuss this, as it effects all of us, it is i have to say, a very poisonous atmosphere. >> that will make for a goodiner, thank you indeed, live for us. >> more to come, how food and water which was buried underground helps sustain cyclone survivors. >> and in sport, seven out of seven for inyeah as they cruise into the last four of the correct world cup.

2:33 pm
groups. on the airport in aidan before the presidential residents in that area were straight from the air. thine people have been arrested in connection with the assault in the which 23 dies. >> and libya's tripoli based government says an air strike has targeted the airport to take off of the delegation heading they hoped to peace talks in morocco. now more on our top story fighting in yemen, i am joined by a journalist who was recently based in yemen let's try to strip this down. robin get into the mine newt of it. some of the military appears to be backing the former president, who has said wants to install it's son. some are backing the current president, keep up these go military machines coming head to head, who will win?
2:34 pm
>> well, at the moment, it's all in favor of the houthies really. even where hadi is an caught and the people are fighting on his behalf, largely militia men, who he has been paying to fight on his behalf, or at least defend him, anyway. s are huge amounts of military, we have seen he has the air force still and military bases around adan are sit under his control through commanders to him. so if it comes to straight up fights they have very little help of survival. >> so when saleh lost his job as president when hadi came in as the new president, where did it all go wrong for the man who is now has to flee for the second time of the presidential palace in his own country? >> well, the war attempts to restructure the military, he did try to push through reforms with sup pot of the international community and the united nations. but really that was as we see
2:35 pm
now was only superficial you can't shift those that have been built up for decades. by moving commanders around or supposedly disbanding entire units. so you can't change that overnight. and now he has been able to come back, and push those buttons rely on those loyalties and wish again the houthiss have been relying on since the middle of last year in order to advance their power as well, and take further territory, they wouldn't have been able to do it without the support. >> which means by your assessment, pretty much that the president is doomed if saleh and his forces loyal to him and his son manage to control pretty much most of the country. and they are arhinian backs. what are they going to think about that. >> well, obviously the concern is that saudi particularly is if the conflict spilled over the border.
2:36 pm
the houthies became involved in 2009, and in 2010. but right now, they are in a position where he has support from the community you know, the saudis have been bounded to adan. >> what sort of support if he is going to be attacked and kicks out of office? >> exactly and this is the problem, who has the most amount of weapons which means the most amount of money and that requires a huge amount of investment. are they prepares to do that, they have been supporting oil areasareas in yemen but they haven't yet put down that money, and that support and he is effectively a dead man walking in that respect. >> does it mat tore those countries outside such as the united states, they have said that yemen is a hot bed in the arabian peninsula, there are frequent drone strikes there. to try to nullify that, does it matter to those interests
2:37 pm
who is in p charge in yemen. >> the general case of insecurity, so once you have these groups fighting it leaves security vacuum, which we saw back in 2011 and when al kade do took territory in the is south but then also al quaida become as tool for the factions to kind of use in order to manipulate the international community as well. so the houthies are direct rivals of al quaida and have been trying to fight them, but we have always seen in yemen in the past that that is when al quaida has taken part of that. so that's the fear that the international community, and gives them more of an opportunity to take territory. >> all right, thank you. thank you very much. >> now an international coalition fighting boko haram is claimed at least one town in the northeast of nigeria. the army says which borders
2:38 pm
was retaken this weekend, and that nearly 230 fighters were killed. she is in the nigerian capitol. >> these reports about major towns being recaptures by the military, are accurate, it could mean the beginning of the end of the boko haram insurgency. according to the military, various towns have been recaptured. town which is was the scene of least two massacres in the which hundreds of peoples were kill. and now, two days ago the military spokesperson tweeted that yaba is free, by our able military #never again. we are going there to the three state which is have been worst effected by the boko haram crieses, however there has been misinformation, and inaccuracy around the
2:39 pm
insurgency before the military have previously announced the capture and killing of the bomb caha ram leader. only for him to appear on youtube videos days later nobody is holding their breath, or saying it is all over, but if the reports are to be believed the end of boko haram is on the horizon. the impact of this on the election has to be positive, the presidentble poll is due to be held, govern ship races on the 11th of april, and security has been a major concern. the ability to vote has been a major concern so if security improved the believe is that the election will go off very peacefully, the safely. >> the head of the u.n. mission in the democratic republic of congo says that the biggest threat to peace in the region remaining the presence of the group called fdlr. they are rebels in the east of the congo,s it stands for democrat ink forces for
